Wik­iLeaks’ As­sange prom­ises leaks on U.S. elec­tion, Google

Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD -

BERLIN — Wik­iLeaks founder Ju­lian As­sange promised “sig­nif­i­cant” dis­clo­sures on sub­jects in­clud­ing the U.S. elec­tion and Google in the com­ing weeks as the se­cret-spilling group marked its 10th an­niver­sary Tues­day.

As­sange said Wik­iLeaks plans to start pub­lish­ing new ma­te­rial start­ing this week but wouldn’t spec­ify the tim­ing or sub­ject.

Speak­ing by video link to an an­niver­sary news con­fer­ence in Berlin, he said the leaks in­clude “sig­nif­i­cant ma­te­rial” on war, arms, oil, Google and the U.S. elec­tion.

Wik­iLeaks hopes “to be pub­lish­ing ev­ery week for the next 10 weeks,” As­sange said.

Wik­iLeaks re­leased Demo­cratic Na­tional Com­mit­tee emails days be­fore the party’s na­tional con­ven­tion. But As­sange said spec­u­la­tion that he or Wik­iLeaks in­tend to harm Demo­cratic nom­i­nee Hil­lary Clin­ton is “false.”
